Thousands of people gathered at Denver's Civic Center Park carried signs, heard speeches, sang and chanted during a rally in support of the Muslim community.
One of the speakers was 17-year-old Zahra Abdulameer who came to the United States as a refugee from Iraq and is now a U.S. citizen. She says she has been welcomed and treated with respect and been able to receive an education.
